There is a saying that cleanliness is next to Godliness. Looking at the extent of how this popular market is, whenever it rains in Onitsha,Anambra state is really disturbing.
The reason why gutters are constructed is for water to pass through them in other to maintain a good environment.
Looking at these pictures below will leave you astonished as to whether people work in this kind of situation/environment and still feels comfortable.
The gutters were all filled up with trash and flood water could no longer find it way to pass through but breaks out to the main road,leaving the environment in shambles.
I saw people sweeping the main road when the rain stopped as if they were sweeping their sitting rooms.
It was a sad moment to behold as dirts were scattered all over the road. I began to ask myself,why won't people's food items not get contaminated in this kind of environment?
I asked one of the food sellers,whether this situation happens all the time ,she said " Yes,We are always prepared whenever it rains".
I checked around to know whether there are refuse bins provided by market heads where people can drop their used items,what surprised me was that i numbered about three of them but they were all empty.
The refuse bin is provided because we are civilized human beings and not animals who does not reason to know what is right or wrong. Use the refuse bin because it is the right thing to do.
